Advantage of stone coated steel roofing

Advantage of Stone Coated Steel Roofing

Steel roofing offers the added benefit of protection from the elements such as wind and hail, and most stone coated steel roofs are able to withstand flame and fire. A regular asphalt roof would not be able to stand up in hurricane winds; many steel roofs can. Steel also does not fade in the sun from UV rays, and color does not dull. It can even reduce energy bills due to its ability to actually reflect UV rays. Steel roofs are also corrosion resistant and can ward off dimpling from hail damage.

Stone coated steel roofing was developed over 50 years ago in New Zealand. It is normally mounted on wood strips called battens, but as the trend for stone covered steel roofing moved into the United States, the need for battens was modified in order to apply it over existing asphalt or wood shingle roofs. Deciding to place a roof either with battens or without depends on the type of design and the location or climate.

It provides exceptional wind resistance and is especially helpful in areas that have a high hurricane season, such as Florida. In this case, it would be recommended to use the batten-less method of steel roofing, which provides better resistance to high winds. Batten roofs work better in areas where hail could be a problem and areas where roofs are steep since the battens make installation easier. It is undoubtedly easier to install stone coated steel roofing without battens because of its prime wind resistance. Batten-less installations of steel roofing do not need excessive wood framing to make the roof more energy efficient. Although there is a slight increase in energy efficiency with battens, it is not enough to make up for the beneficial weather resistance of batten-less roofing. It is, however, necessary to install batten framing when the roof is being laid over an existing wood shingle or if the home is without an attic.

Both methods meet all North American building codes and California Title-24 Energy Codes, ensuring a more environmentally friendly structure.
